Dasha interviews Wardlow and MJF.
She points out that if Wardlow wins the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, he could possibly become THE AEW World Champion, and asks how he feels about that. MJF stops things right there to set something straight. He is so proud of Wardlow and all he will accomplish after defeating one of the great stars in AEW in Hangman Page. BUT, if Wardlow wins and beats the champion, MJF becomes champion because Wardlow is under contract to MJF. That means anything Wardlow owns, MJF owns. Right, Wardlow? Yep… But then Sammy Guevara comes by and says, “Wow. What a nice way to talk to people, Max.” MJF says “Hey, little buddy! What’re you doing here? Nice jacket!”
Oh cut the crap, MJF! Screw your jacket! Sammy is not MJF’s friend or buddy, and tonight, Sammy makes sure MJF NEVER joins the Inner Circle. MJF has Wardlow stand down and tells him to prepare for his match. MJF asks the “little guy” where all this hostility is coming from. They were pals! MJF was going to give Sammy advice. That attack Sammy had on Matt Hardy last week, very nice. But MJF has a note for his promos: Don’t. Aw what’s the matter? “The guy who looks like he sells Adderall to middle schoolers is upset?” Oh no…! What’s he going to do about it? Is he deaf? NO. He’s thinking about all the things Sammy will do about it. MJF backs off to accompany Wardlow to the ring. Will MJF and Sammy revisit this issue later on?

AEW hears from Jon Moxley.
“All year, I have defended the AEW World Championship with everything I have, to grow and cultivate and foster this championship, to make it the number one prize in this sport.” Up until now, it’s been all business. But Full Gear, it isn’t about the #1, 2, 3 contender. This time, it’s personal. Moxley won’t be defending the AEW World Championship. He will be weaponizing it. “Miserable, excuse making, son of a b*tch. No, there’s no room for this Eddie Kingston in AEW. AEW is for the greatest athletes in the world, who do the work! Who put their asses on the line, who have guts.” When Kingston looks around, there will be no one else to blame when he says the words, “I Quit.” He will be alone with his ego, and the painful realization that Moxley did to him what he’s done to everyone else with a big mouth: crushed their mouths, their windpipes, their skulls and their egos. “Protect ya neck, Eddie.”
Eddie Kingston VS Matt Sydal!
The champion has spoken, but the challenger will let his actions do the talking. With the Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny by his side, the Mad King looks to give Sydal’s third eye a shiner. Will Sydal be grounded as Kingston heads for Full Gear?
AEW returns as Kingston grabs a mic. “How dare the world champion not be here.” Kingston is sick and tired of talking, he wants to fight! But the world champion decides to go stay home. Cameraman, get out. Who cares if they tell you to get in, stay out of his world. Kingston doesn’t like Moxley at home. But since Moxley’s a coward, Kingston said it, he will take out the man who tried to steal Kingston’s thunder being the Joker in the Casino Battle Royal. Yes, it’s Matt Sydal. But Kingston was never actually eliminated. Hi, Lance. But bring out the Joker, and hopefully Moxley is watching. Sydal makes his entrance, and Joker VS King begins!
Kingston and Sydal circle, tie up, but then Kingston backs off to tell the ref to watch Sydal. Kingston comes back, tie sup with Sydal, Kingston waistlocks but Sydal switches. Kingston wrenches the arm, hammerlocks, but Sydal switches back. Kingston gets the arm again, then headlocks, but Sydal spins out to high wristlock. Kingston throws Sydal down hard, and the two reset. Sydal has the fans on his side but Kingston puts his dukes up. They tie up, Kingston powers Sydal to a corner, but he lets off at the ref’s count, only for Sydal to duck the chop. Sydal CHOPS back, then follows Kingston as he goes to another corner. Kingston wants Sydal to back off, Sydal stays where he is. They tie up again, Kingston headlocks but Sydal powers out. Sydal arm-drags Kingston around, flips Kingston around and gets the armlock!
Kingston endures, clasps hands to avoid a Fujiwara, and powers up to elbow Sydal on the back! Kingston is free, but Sydal gets around for a takedown to a cover, TWO! Sydal hits the rolling sobat! Kingston is in a corner, Sydal basement dropkicks in! Cover, TWO! Sydal keeps his cool as he goes after arms. Kingston endures, fights up, wrenches and throws back elbows. Sydal KICKS the leg, then KICKS it again! Sydal leaps but his sobat is caught for a SLAM! Kingston drops an elbow and Bunny Allie is rabid at ringside! Fans chant “Kingston Sucks!” as Kingston stalks Sydal to ropes. Kingston chokes Sydal as AEW goes picture in picture.
The ref counts, Kingston lets off and he CHOPS Sydal in a corner. Kingston chokes Sydal more, the ref counts and Kingston lets off again. Kingston drags Sydal up, punches him to a corner, then stomps Sydal at the ropes. Kingston stomps Sydal into a corner, drags him back up and snapmares him for a BOOT! Kingston kicks at Sydal, drags him back up, but Sydal throws body shots and kicks! Sydal runs, but Kingston runs him over with an elbow! Kingston stomps Sydal while Allie is fired up again. Kingston brings Sydal up, chinlocks tight, then shifts to a seated abdominal stretch. Sydal endures, fights up, fights back with body shots and kicks, then runs to sunset flip! TWO!! Kingston CLOBBERS Sydal!
Sydal writhes while Kingston rests in a corner. Kingston shakes out the legs before going over to stomp Sydal. Sydal sits up to egg Kingston on but Kingston CHOPS him! Kingston runs but Sydal dodges the boot to sweep the leg! STANDING TORNILLO! Sydal gets up and AEW returns to single picture. Fans rally for Sydal but Kingston’s family cheers him on. Kingston throws forearms and CHOPS, but Sydal will not fall! Sydal KNEES back! And ROUNDHOUSES! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Kingston and Sydal rise. Kingston is in one corner, Sydal runs in but Kingston elbows him away. Kingston hops up, Sydal comes back to throw haymakers! Sydal climbs up, Kingston shoves him back down, but Sydal NO HANDS RANAS! Sydal goes up, FLYING METEORA! Cover, TWO!!
Fans keep rallying as Sydal rises. Sydal runs, Kingston tries to knee but Sydal school boys, TWO! GHOST PIN, TWO!! Kingston swings, Sydal runs, kitchen sink knee hits! URAKEN!! The back hand takes Sydal down but Kingston isn’t done! Kingston brings down the straps, shouts “MOXLEY!” and he puts Sydal in the BULLY CHOKE! Sydal taps, Kingston wins!
Winner: Eddie Kingston, by submission
But Kingston won’t let go!! He wants to torture Sydal on behalf of Moxley! The Butcher, Blade and Bunny get in and they have a mic. “Say it, Moxley!” Sydal says “I QUIT!” and Kingston lets him go. Kingston apologizes to Moxley through his proxy, but will he have no regrets when he and THE AEW World Champion fight without restraint?
Excalibur interviews FTR and the Young Bucks.
Excalibur is live with Matt and Nick Jackson while Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood and their manager, Tully Blanchard, are via video chat. These two teams face off for the AEW World Tag Team Championships at Full Gear, but of course the question must be asked. How is Matt’s ankle? The doc says it’s a severe sprain and tubular contusion, but Matt insists it’s fine. Nick wants Matt to be a bit more honest but Matt says “This match has been brewing for years now.” You think this little injury will keep him out of the match? Nick says Matt can’t even play with the kids at home. Matt says Nick can carry him to the ring, because Matt’s not missing Full Gear.
But Excalibur says Matt just said it, and that leads to the next question: Why would FTR jeopardize this match-up happening, the one fans have always wanted, by doing something like this? Dax defends he and Cash aren’t afraid of backlash. This match IS a dream match, but that’s not what FTR cares about. FTR cares about being AEW World Tag Team Champions. On November 7th, at Full Gear, whoever walks out THE AEW World Tag Team Champions have cemented their legacies as THE best tag team in wrestling. Excalibur notes how he’s known the Bucks for years, but FTR interrupts by saying that’s the only reason Excalibur has a job here.
Excalibur continues with his question to say that the Bucks’ recent behavior, in the eyes of some in the locker room, was karma. Matt and Nick like to think themselves as “regular good people,” and sometimes even good people do bad things. Do they regret doing the things they’ve done? How they’ve been “out of character” recently. Matt isn’t proud of what they’ve done, he can’t say he regrets it. For the last year, they’ve been suffering, and realized there’s something missing. A spark, an edge, something they couldn’t quite place. And in the moment, “these pricks right here started screwing with our livelihood, and manipulating our friends!” It was just boom, something changed for the Bucks, and that killer instinct returned. The old Bucks are back. Will this be the cause of their own undoing? Maybe. Matt isn’t sure he even likes the way he feels, and that’s the same for Nick, but FTR better be ready.
Excalibur asks Nick how he really feels about that, but FTR interrupts again. Enough about the Bucks, talk more to them, the champions. But they get it, Excalibur doesn’t need them for this interview, right? They don’t deserve FTR, so see you at Full Gear. Well Excalibur wanted to ask Nick about how there’s more to lose than just the championships. Yes, the stipulation Matt just thought off, Nick can’t decide if he’s for or against it. Matt, go ahead and tell the world. Two self-made brothers, “two poor kids from southern California,” nothing was ever handed to them. They built their own ring and taught themselves how to wrestle. That was their college education. Every success was because they bet on themselves. Excalibur was there for that, so he knows. Their backs were against the walls and they always found away.
So that’s why, at Full Gear, it’s all on the line! If the Bucks do NOT win the AEW World Tag Team Championships this time, they will NEVER challenge for those titles again! Wow… Really?! Well then, this dream match has even higher stakes than before. Will the Bucks finally be on top of the world? Or will they never have the top tag prize in AEW?
It’s time for the AEW Town Hall Meeting!
Tony Schiavone and Dasha Gonzales welcome us to this special moment, as The Inner Circle will discuss whether MJF will join them or not. Firstly, Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle make their entrance. And after the fans finish singing Judas, MJF makes his entrance. Jericho and MJF take their seats and the first question is from Luchasaurus. “My question is for MJF. As a representative of dinosaurs, and as a medieval historian, I understand the power of economics in creating change over time within societies.” Consider then, MJF not having a Master’s Degree like Luchasaurus. How can MJF contribute to the earning potential and financial prosperity of The Inner Circle? Wow, give it up for Luchasaurus! Great question, dinosaur! But luckily for everyone at home, MJF has his answer.
On screen is a graph showing the Inner Circle’s earnings over the last year, “pre-MJF.” Very erratic. But then the projected earnings, “post-MJF,” is a straight arrow to the top. MJF has all the top financial advisors help him with this. “Sky’s the limit, baby.” Fans boo but MJF says it’s simple math! The next question comes from Dr. Britt Baker, DMD, as well as Reba/Rebel. Rebel is a bit star struck seeing Jericho, he has a great smile. And he’s so handsome! Britt tells Reba to stop. Britt says she loves MJF, he’s great, but you don’t have to be a dentist like Britt to see that he has a TERRIBLE track record with friends in AEW. How does that make Le Champion feel? Jericho says she has a valid point, and is very aware of MJF’s past. But Jericho isn’t “a dips*it like Cody,” so they’re not letting MJF into the Inner Circle’s inner circle. MJF knows nothing about their strategies, plans or secrets that they have. Besides, if MJF tries to turn on them, they’ll knock his friggin’ teeth down his throat.
MJF wants everyone to calm down! This is exciting and all, but c’mon. He’d never turn on any of them. They’re all in this great profession for the same reason, right? Money, and championships. MJF promises all of them together as one will get them a whole lot of green, and a whole lot of gold. You know he’s right. Jericho and the Inner Circle settle down as Peter Avalon is next to ask a question. “Okay, look. I’m just gonna shot my shot. Can I join the Inner Circle?” Whoa! Bold move. The Inner Circle discusses it, then laughs! MJF laughs, too. There is NO chance, Avalon. Next up is “Mr. Eric B.” BISCHOFF?! He’s back again?!
Eric thanks Schiavone for the intro, and thanks Jericho, “esteemed members of the Inner Circle,” and “Mr. Friedman” for letting him have this time. “I have a three-pronged question, if you will.” First: January 20th, 1961, President JFK’s inaugural address famously stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” Therefore, he asks MJF, what can HE do for the Inner Circle? MJF says that Eric gave a great question. He can only give him this one word answer: “Friendship.” Fans boo again and MJF can’t believe they’re upset by that. Eric then conversely asks, “Given that most would consider you to be nearly a complete package as a wrestler, what is it that you believe the Inner Circle can do for you?”
MJF corrects Eric there, he isn’t nearly a complete package. He IS a complete package. But great second part. Guys, stop booing, he’s talking. While MJF is a total package, he accepts one dent in the armor: he isn’t the best team player. But MJF firmly believes that once he joins these great men, he can be. And finally, Eric asks MJF that, as Eric has worked with Jericho for many years in the past, and most would agree that Jericho is a “prima donna”- WHAT?! Jericho says he never liked Eric! Schiavone stops Jericho there and says Mr. Bischoff still has the floor. But he insulted Jericho! Jericho, SHUT UP! Eric thanks Schiavone for that. And to finish his third question, given MJF has the same “prima donna” characteristics-
Whoa, whoa, whoa! MJF is upset now. Please, let Eric finish. Eric asks “What is the guarantee that, if you do join the Inner Circle, you two just don’t end up killing each other?” MJF says this is preposterous! The entire time, he’s been booed, thrown arrows at him like he’s Frankenstein’s Monster or something! He’s a good man! He came out here as a sign of respect and took a leap of faith! Jericho wants MJF to calm down. Answer the question: How are they supposed to know MJF won’t stab them in the back? Jericho, you can’t be serious. How about Jericho answer a question? Week after week, MJF has made it clear he checks every box! He has done everything for Jericho! Presents, great television content, and friendship! And to top it off, last week, MJF gave Jericho the best segment of his CAREER, and the world the best segment in the HISTORY of pro-wrestling!! So MJF asks “Christopher,” what hasn’t MJF done?
“You haven’t beat me.” But Jericho will give MJF that chance. At Full Gear, Jericho VS MJF, 1v1! And if MJF wins, if he wins, MJF is in the Inner Circle. Wow, okay. MJF tells Jericho this is the biggest opportunity of his life so he won’t take it for granted. He tells Jericho now, man to man, “I will do whatever it takes to win. I will do anything to win.” Jericho expects nothing less. No, MJF wants Jericho to understand. He means anything. Ortiz says, “SHUT UP! All you do you is run your mouth! There is no conversation needed!” Sammy doesn’t want you in. Ortiz doesn’t want you in. Santana is undecided, and Jake Hager is too busy getting ready for a fight. But don’t believe for one second that just because Jericho is entertaining the idea, that MJF has a shot of getting in with them! Because next week, Sammy and Ortiz take on MJF and Wardlow! And best believe that MJF isn’t even making it to Full Gear.
MJF is going to have to take the long route to joining this powerful faction! Will he and Wardlow make it through the Spanish God and the Boricua pitbull to then have a Full Gear dream match?
Team Taz speaks.
“So Will Hobbs wrestles on Dark, wins his match. Some people wondering, ‘Why would you keep going after Hobbs if he hasn’t given you an answer yet?'” Taz says it’s simple: Team Taz is about victories, championships, and money. Hobbs is legit, from being athletic and fast as hell to being big as hell and mean as hell, too. That fits into their world. Hobbs stood up to Cage and Starks as they went after Darby Allin, but there’s still time. Hobbs needs to decide. Cage wants to know, “What’s the deal, huh?!” Is Hobbs in, or is he out? He got involved in their business, but will he change course and be part of the team? Or was Dark answer enough?
AEW TNT Championship Lumberjack Match: Cody Rhodes VS Orange Cassidy!
Last time, the American Nightmare and Freshly Squeezed went to a time limit draw! Of course, you could credit The Dark Order minions for part of that, as they did their best to interfere and mess with both competitors. Now things will be very different, as Best Friends, Jurassic Express and a few others will be there to keep The Dark Order in line. Will Cody and Cassidy have a real result before the time runs out? And if so, who meets Darby Allin at Full Gear to do it all over again?
AEW returns as the lumberjacks are at ringside. Cody makes his entrance with all the same fanfare, but also with the Nightmare Family’s QT Marshall, Dustin Rhodes and Arn Anderson! They join the lumberjacks as introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this red hot rematch begins!
Cody and Cassidy stare down, try to fake the other out, but then Cassidy dodges, tries the Orange Punch already but Cody gets around to dragon sleeper! Cassidy slips out to Mouse Trap but Cody gets out of that, too! The two stand off as fans and lumberjacks fire up! Cody and Cassidy circle, feel the grapple out, but Cassidy raises his hands. Cody grimaces, but this is a fake out, too! Cassidy gets around, waistlocks, headlocks and takeovers! Cody endures the grind, rolls to a cover, ONE! They get up, Cassidy wrenches, hammerlocks, headlocks and hits another takeover. Cody gets up, powers up but Cassidy holds on to hit a third takeover! Fans are fired up as Cody gets to his feet. Cody pries out of the headlock, wrenches to a wristlock, and puts Cassidy in a corner. Cody wrenches, whips and WRINGS Cassidy into the buckles!
Cody keeps the Dark Order and others from Cassidy to then whip again. Cassidy reverses and redirects Cody into the corner, Cody has to kick at Evil Uno to keep him away. Cassidy backslides in the distraction, TWO! Cody punches low and slows Cassidy- Well, brings him back to normal pace actually. Cody wrenches the arm, reels Cassidy in and suplexes. He holds Cassidy up for a count of 10 before the gourd buster! Cody shows off by doing some push-ups! Arn tells Cody to stay serious and Cody covers, ONE! Cody keeps his cool, drags Cassidy up and throws elbows into Cassidy’s back. Cody yanks the arm, wrenches and reels Cassidy in, but Cassidy suplexes Cody up and stalls for about 8 before the slam! Fans are fired up as Cody bails out.
Cassidy takes a moment to make sure his knee is alright, but the lumberjacks are about to meet. Hobbs and the Gunn Club make sure The Numbers stay back. Cassidy goes out, Cody gets in, but now the Best Friends step up! Chuck Taylor shoves Alan “Number 5” Angels away so that he, Trent and Cassidy have room to HUG! Cassidy gets back on the apron, shoulders into Cody, then steps in, but into a DRAGON SCREW! Cody took advantage of Cassidy’s slow pace, and then he throws a forearm! Best Friends catch Cassidy, prop him back up, and Cassidy shoulders in! Cassidy slingshots up and over, ducks under and drops down, Cody misses and falls out of the ring! The lumberjacks are crowding each other again, Cody gets up but Cassidy forearms him!
Cody wobbles and holds on to ropes but Cassidy slaps his hands away. Best Friends catch Cody, as lumberjacks are allowed to do, but then they DROP him! Oops? Dustin helps Cody, Cody shoves Chuck but Dustin keeps him focused. Cody gets in, Cassidy BOOTS Cody to ropes! Cassidy kips up but his knee jams and the ref checks on him. Trent sucker punches Cody in the distraction! Dustin is upset, but Cassidy climbs up and leaps, CROSSBODY! He bounces off, comes back and tilt-o-whirls, but Cody drops him to FIGURE- NO! Cassidy boots Cody off the leg lock and Cody tumbles out into the Dark Order! They go after him, Cody gets in the ring, Cassidy tilt-o-whirls to DDT this time! Cover, TWO!! Cody survives and everyone is fired up!
Cassidy goes to a corner as fans and lumberjacks rally. Cassidy calls for the 450 but just does a regular splash, onto knees! Cody gets up and clotheslines Cassidy and himself out! The Best Friends have Cody, the Natural Nightmares have Cassidy, but they call truce and help both guys in as AEW goes picture in picture.
Fans cheer the sportsmanship as Cody and Cassidy slowly rise. Cody trips Cassidy and gets a leg. Cassidy fights but Cody slams the leg on the mat!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
But now all hell breaks loose as the lumberjacks brawl in the ring! Cody retains his title, though through various nefarious means at the end, he’s headed to Full Gear! Will Darby at least get a fair match? As for the brawling, It’s hard to tell who isn’t in there! Things start to spill out of the ring, but Billy Gunn tops it all of by giving Preston “Number 10” Vance a FAMOUSER! QUICK DRAW from Austin to Vance! Darby watches from the nosebleeds. Will Cody be able to stop the #Relentless underdog if it took all this chaos for Cody to retain?
Alex Marvez interviews Best Friends back stage.
After all that chaos, he wants to ask about their grudge with Kip Sabian and Miro. But before there is an answer, Kip and Miro show up! Neither side wants to fight, and both Kip and Miro are apologetic. Kip explains that ALAN the arcade cabinet was a wedding present from Miro to him, so that’s why it was a big deal. But they forgive Trent and Chuck now. And they have presents of their own! Penelope Ford, who is Cassidy for Halloween, hands the Best Friends a wrapped present. Thanks. But before they go, Penelope asks, “Trick or treat?” Neither…? Wrong answer! Miro and Kip attack!! This was never an apology! They throw Bets Friends around the locker room, and say that they were never sorry about how they treated Best Friends!
Miro throws Trent into a wall! Then drag shim up to say, “I will never forgive you! NEVER!” And the present was just ALAN’s control panel, which of course Kip takes back. But is there no going back from the accident turned all out feud?
NWA Women’s World Championship: Serena Deeb VS Leyla Hirsch!
It was just last Tuesday night, Thunder Rosa was DETHRONED, and a NEW NWA Women’s World Champion was crowned! But there’s no resting on laurels, Serena Deeb is ready to defend her title as a true fighting champion! Will #LEGIT Leyla catch the new champ off guard and take away all that legacy and respect Deeb worked so hard to win?

Hirsch grows annoyed but she brings Deeb up to whip her to a corner. Hirsch runs in, Deeb dodges and then baits Hirsch into a facelock through the ropes! Deeb turns Hirsch for a hotshot neckbreaker! Hirsch writhes, Deeb gets back in and GEDO CLUTCH, TWO! Hirsch escapes, Deeb omoplatas the arm but Hirsch kicks away on Deeb’s arm! Hirsch drags Deeb down, wants the cross armbreaker, but Deeb clasps hands to resist.
Deeb moves, covers, TOW! Hirsch lets Deeb go, gets the arm again and hits an ARM BREAKER! Then a hammerlock, and she RAMS Deeb into corners! Fans fire up as Hirsch grabs Deeb for a facelock and another hammerlock. Hirsch RAMS Deeb into more buckles as AEW goes picture in picture.
Hirsch steps on Deeb for a cocky cover, ONE! Hirsch drags Deeb up and puts her on ropes to wrap the arm around and pull! The ref counts, Hirsch holds on until 4, and Deeb gets to a corner. Hirsch drags Deeb around again, wraps the arm back around ropes and pulls! Again the ref counts but again Hirsch lets go at 4. Hirsch drags Deeb to center, and armbars the arm while Deeb is on her stomach! Deeb endures the modified omoplata and gets a ropebreak with her legs! Hirsch holds on until 4 again, then gets up to grab at Deeb. Hirsch facelocks, goes after the arm and grinds Deeb down to the mat. Deeb endures, fights up to her feet and arm-drags Hirsch away! Deeb gets to ropes, Hirsch is on her and whips, but Deeb reverse to straitjacket NECKBREAKER! Both women are down, their arms hurting, but fans rally up as AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Deeb stands over Hirsch. Deeb shakes out the bad arm, brings Hirsch up but Hirsch fires off palm strikes to the chest from all sides! Hirsch kicks a leg out then KNEES Deeb down! Waistlock and GERMAN SUPLEX! Hirsch drags Deeb around, steps on her as she heads to the corner and climbs up top. Hirsch MOONSAULTS, but FLOPS as Deeb moves! Deeb grabs Hirsch for the SWINGING NECKBREAKER! And then a normal but stiff neckbreaker! Deeb omoplatas, gets the leg, HALF CRAB! Hirsch TAPS, Deeb wins!!
Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission (still NWA Women’s World Champion)
Deeb wins the title then successfully defends it 24 hours later! Are we seeing the start to an incredible reign?
Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.
The AEW Women’s World Champion knows Nyla Rose has been #1 contender for some time, but Nyla says she refuses to wrestle until Shida accepts the rematch challenge. Shida’s response? “Nyla, you want me? I want you at Full Gear!” There it is! The challenge has been accepted, how will this rematch from Double or Nothing go?
Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard VS VSK!
The Chair Man is not one for sharing spotlight or moments, and he continues to claim Scorpio Sky is a spotlight thief. Will Spears finally have #PERFECT10N all to himself tonight?
Spears’ black glove is not loaded, for now. The bell rings and Spears circles with VSK. They tie up, Spears fireman’s carries already, C4!! But Spears takes his time to the cover, and he wins!
Winner: Shawn Spears, by pinfall
That was certainly Spears’ fastest win ever, but could’ve been even faster if he didn’t take time to gloat. But then a minotaur throws candy at him? Spears goes out to confront the minotaur, drags him out to ringside and puts him in the ring! The minotaur flounders and asks Spears take it easy. Spears has Tully give him the slug, but the minotaur is Scorpio Sky! And that’s no bull! Spears turns around into Scorpio’s fireman’s carry and T K O!! Scorpio glares at Tully before going back to his minotaur mask. As they say, if you mess with the bull, you get the horns. Will Scorpio make sure Spears finally bucks off?
AEW sets more matches for Full Gear!
Not only is the AEW Women’s World Championship match set with Shida VS Rose, the Buy-In has been set! After his involvement in the TNT Championship match, John Silver will face Orange Cassidy 1v1! Will Silver face the consequences on behalf of the entire Dark Order?
Plus, AEW has plans for Dynamite next week!
In the go-home to Full Gear, Chris Jericho will be on commentary, and he’ll surely want to watch that match of Sammy Guevara & Ortiz VS MJF & Wardlow very closely. Then Miro VS Trent go 1v1 to see if Trent can get payback for that hallway attack! And after what we just saw, Scorpio Sky and Shawn Spears will finally have it out in a match! Plus, Cody saw the Gunn Club step up against the Dark Order, and he wants to fight alongside them! Cody, Billy and Austin will take on the Dark Order’s Preston Vance, John Silver, and BOOM BOOM Colt Cabana! And before going to dark places in their I Quit match, champion and challenger, Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston, will have one last face to face! Will they keep from turning that into a free preview of Full Gear?
AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament Semifinals: Kenny Omega VS Penta El Zero M w/ Rey Fenix!
And speaking of Full Gear, this is the match-up we have to determine the other finalist! The Cleaner put Sonny Kiss away in the blink of an eye, but the Lucha Brothers went to war, and though Fenix won, he basically eliminated himself with an injury. Penta gets his spot by default, but neither brother seems that happy about it. Will Cero Miedo triumph this time to take on Hangman? Or will Omega deny Eddie Kingston’s dream of facing his “best friend” in an AEW World Championship match?
AEW returns as Omega has a new prologue to his entrance: Bleacher Report has said over and over again this year that Omega has “risen to the occasion”; Vice calls Omega “the hottest thing in the world of wrestling”; ESPN has said Omega is a “special kind of performer”; Sports Illustrated says “no one can capture an audience’s attention” quite like Omega; Wrestle Joy has described Omega as “a genius”; Last Word on Sports has said Omega is a legend. “He is international held as a trailblazer by media outlets around the world. He has an old high school buddy that currently resides in North Carolina…” This is Kenny OOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAA!
Oh hey, the cleaner girls, aka the Sweepers, are back, but wearing the Lucha Bro masks. And their dance is a bit more elaborate this time. Omega actually makes his entrance now, and he moves with smooth, slow swagger to the stage for his pyro. Omega finally goes to the ring, and we have this All In rematch long overdue finally happen!
Omega and Penta start at a slower pace than Omega did with Kiss. Omega doesn’t take his shirt off, he must not be taking this seriously. They tie up, Omega headlocks and thrashes Pentagon but Penta powers out. Penta drops, Omega walks all over him! Fans are torn on the swagger but Penta definitely doesn’t like it. Penta shoves, Omega shoves back but then Omega backs off to “apologize.” Omega lifts his shirt to reveal he’s wearing the AAA Mega Championship! Omega rubs that in Fenix’s face as well as Penta’s before taking it off. Omega taunts them with it, Fenix gets up on the apron but the ref tells him to stay back. Omega puts the belt down and dares Penta to do something. Penta dares Omega back! Omega CHOPS! Penta stays up, Omega takes his shirt off, and Penta CHOPS!
Omega grins, he got what he wanted out of that one. Omega CHOPS back, but Penta stays up. Penta takes off the glove with all the due pomp and circumstance, and tosses the glove. Omega intercepts, and SLAPS Penta with it! Omega says Penta needs to chop him, and Penta winds up, but Omega kicks and fires off! Omega stomps and stomps and stomps! And then slaps him with his own glove again and again! Omega wipes his sweat with the glove and throws it at Fenix. Omega brings Penta up to throw forearms, whip but Penta reverses. Penta runs into Omega’s boot, but comes back. Omega goes up and over and rolls, but turns around into that CHOP! Penta swaggers over to KICK the leg! Penta tells the ref to back off and he whips. Omega reverses, Penta goes up and over to BACKSTABBER!
Penta rallies the fans as Omega bails out. Penta builds speed, and FLIES! Direct hit!! Penta does crash a bit into railing and now Fenix check son his brother. Fans rally for “CERO MIEDO!” as AEW goes picture in picture.
Omega and Penta get up but Penta hobbles over. Penta still KICKS Omega’s leg and sends him hobbling away! Penta refreshes the count, then goes back to KICK Omega again! Penta POSTS Omega, follows him around the way, but Omega kicks back! Penta KICKS the leg out, then drags Omega up and into the ring. Omega hurries away but Penta is on him with a grounded motorcycle stretch. Omega endures as his arms are pulled back but Penta boots him to a corner! Penta stretches Omega against ropes but lets up at the ref’s count. Penta drags Omega up, throws him out of the ring, then follows him out to clothesline him into the crowd of fellow wrestlers! Penta is fired up as he follows and KICKS Omega! Omega uses someone’s cooler to sweep the legs!
Omega kicks and kicks Penta then bounces him off the cooler! Omega paces, Penta throws a water bottle at him! Omega DDT’s Penta to the cooler! Omega is going crazy as he puts Penta back to ringside. Omega is talking to himself as he goes over the railing and follows Penta into the ring. Penta stomps Omega as AEW returns to single picture, but Omega CHOPS and forearms back! Penta KICKS the bad leg, says CERO MIEDO then runs, into a NO HANDS RANA! Penta bails out to steady himself but the Terminator drums begin! Omega builds speed, and FLIES! Direct hit and they crash into railing! Omega is fired up as he puts Penta back in! Fans fire up with Omega as he wipes the sweat. Penta KICKS Omega in the head at the ropes!
Penta goes up top as Omega steadies himself. Penta LEAPS for the crossbody! Both men are down but the fans are fired up! Penta is up first, he drags Omega up and into the ring. Penta climbs, Fenix rallies behind his brother, and Penta leaps. Omega dodges and Penta rolls through his own stomps. Omega runs but the V-Trigger misses, Penta BOOTS! Penta runs, springboard SLING BLADE! Cover, TWO!! Omega survives the “Spring-Blade” but Penta keeps focus. Penta drags Omega up, brings him over to a corner and clubs him. Penta hops up but Omega fires up to fire off haymakers! Omega laughs as he goes up but Penta slips out to SUPERKICK a leg out! Omega is stuck, Penta goes up, WOE STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Omega still lives but Penta fires himself up.
Penta gets up, fireman’s carries, Omega kicks out to full nelson and SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega talks to himself again as he gets up. Fans are thunderous as Penta rises. Omega reels Penta back in, SNAP DRAGON! Omega keeps going as he brings Penta back up. Omega full nelsons again, but Penta resists and elbows free! Penta CHOPS, CHOPS, and V-TRIGGER from Omega stops that! DR. WILY BOMB, to V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO?!!? Penta survives and Omega can’t believe it! Omega pleads with the ref but “This is Awesome!” as it continues! Penta gets to ropes, Omega takes aim and BANG! Omega runs, V-TRIGGER! Omega Electric Chairs, but Penta fights of and elbows! Omega BLINDSIDE HEEL KICKS! Penta ends up in a corner, Omega goes corner to corner, BLINDSIDE V-TRIGGER!!
Omega shovels Penta up top then climbs up to join him. Omega wants the full nelson again, Penta resists and fights free. Omega CHOPS Penta on the back, goes out to CHOP Penta’s front, then adjusts position. Omega aims for the ramp!? Penta fights back, throwing body shots and a headbutt! Omega falls to the ramp, Penta adjusts and leaps, DESTROYER to the ramp!! The ref checks on both men and somehow, Omega is okay to continue! Penta puts Omega in, drags him up and tucks him in, PACKAGE DRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?!?! Omega survives and shocks everyone, especially Penta! Fenix rallies for Penta as Penta brings Omega up. Penta pump handles, half nelsons, but Omega resists the lift! Omega breaks free, elbows Penta away, but Penta clubs away on Omega’s back! Penta hooks in again, but Omega arm-drags free! Penta enziguris fast!
Penta fires up, Fenix is right there with him! The fans rally up as Penta drags Omega up. CERO MIEDO, and a run, into a V-TRIGGER!! Omega wants to end this, and he drags Penta up! Electric Chair, fold, but Penta fights with haymakers! Penta drags Omega down into the hammerlock! Penta has the other arm, DARK ARMBAR!! Pop goes Omega’s shoulder!! Penta isn’t done there, he drags Omega back up and pump handles him, but Omega fights off! The bad arm is throbbing so he CHOPS with the good arm! Then he throws double chops! Omega runs, into a SUPERKICK! Omega wobbles, Penta springboards, into a V-TRIGGER!! Electric Chair, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!! Cover, OMEGA WINS!!!
Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (advances to the finals at Full Gear)
The AAA Mega Champion reminds us why all those people, reporters and outlets said what they said about him! Omega IS the Best Bout Machine, and he has one more battle before he can be called #1 contender! Will he and Hangman tear the house down to not only prove who is worthy of a title shot, but to prove who was the stronger tag partner?
A great episode, though maybe not as great as it could’ve been. My only real gripe is how the TNT Championship match ended. Cody VS Cassidy with lumberjacks was going great, but the Dark Order getting maybe too involved and then Arn Anderson, for all his talk of Cody taking this serious and all that, still giving a sucker punch, that just kinda hurt the whole thing. I suppose Cody VS Darby is still a great choice because they’ve had history since literally Dynamite’s start, but I would’ve loved if Cody let Cassidy take this and go against Darby. I suppose the reason could be is that Cody will put Darby over and let Darby carry the title as he continues things with Team Taz. Speaking of, Team Taz had a good promo to call out Hobbs. I expect Team Taz to get involved at some point, Hobbs might respond, only to “swerve” us and turn on Darby. Hoping it’s after Darby wins because a feud is great, but with Starks wanting the TNT title, it’s two birds with one stone for this.
Moxley had a good final vignette, Kingston had a good promo and match with Sydal, a little disappointed Natural Nightmares didn’t confront Butcher, Blade and Bunny, but maybe we get that on Dark. With the face to face in the go-home, I wonder if Archer gets involved so that the math is skewed. Having Serena Deeb on the show as the newly minted NWA Women’s World Champion was great, and she had a great match with Leyla Hirsch. I recall there being an advertised Taynara Conti VS Abadon, and as much as I’m creeped out by Abadon, her and Conti would’ve had a good match. Maybe that still happens on Dark and the NWA title match was an audible. Spears DESTROYING VSK was clearly just a way to get minotaur Scorpio getting the drop on him. Their match is happening in the go-home, that’ll be a lot of fun and could also go a ways to determining a separate contender to the TNT championship.
Shida VS Nyla was of course happening but it was good to hear it from Shida, though no one else really kayfabe’d it the way it was framed on Dark. The quick backstage brawl with Best Friends, Miro and Kip was good, but I feel like they should just do the tag match already if they’re not doing it at Full Gear in even the Buy-In. Cassidy VS Silver is on the Buy-In even though that’s more Dark or go-home tier to me. The Bucks and FTR had a really good interview segment, FTR were really playing up being obnoxious, and the Bucks are doing their “all or nothing” story to follow in Cody’s footsteps. I feel the Bucks paced their story better than Cody’s, but I would hope this means they get the win at Full Gear. I don’t see Bucks dominating an alternate title the same way Cody has.
The “Town Hall” was a good segment, but not quite Jericho’s debate with Cassidy good. Eric’s questions were the best, as was the back and forth with MJF and Jericho. Jericho VS MJF is going to be great, and I like how ominous MJF was about doing anything to win. We might even see some of that next week in that tag match they also set up. And while it was so clear right from the start that Full Gear would have Omega VS Hangman, the matches tonight were incredible, it made everything worth it. I love that Omega’s prologue was all brand new, and I bet it’ll be all new things for Full Gear. On a PPV with FTR VS Bucks, two great title rematches, and even an I Quit match, Omega VS Hangman is going to be the real main event, no matter where it is on the card.
My Score: 9.2/10

Tonight, I fight back. And if I needed any more motivation to win other than getting those three points, it’s putting somebody like you in his place.”
Bryan Danielson speaks.
“Eddie Kingston, tonight, it’s you and me in the Continental Classic. And do y’know what? I don’t want depressed Eddie Kingston.

Bryan, I do respect you, sort of, so I don’t care about your eye, I don’t care about your arm, I don’t care about anything about you. All I care about is winning. So guess what?

Jon Moxley speaks.
“If it turns out that entering this Continental Classic tournament was a bad idea, I won’t find out ’til it’s too late. I’m banged up. Maybe the last four years is finally catching with me, because nobody’s done it anywhere in the world like I do it the last four years. My head hurts, my neck hurts, my back hurts, now my knee hurts. Getting that tingly-ness in my fingers now all the time. I live in pain on a day to day basis like most people couldn’t even imagine. Now on top of that, my head’s not screwed on straight all the time lately. The doctors are prescribing me this medication, that medication.
“And I’m just sick of it all. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off at my body failing me, I’m sick and tired of being depressed, I’m being sick and tired about being pissed about the entire last year. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off. So I’m gonna do the only thing I know how to do, the only thing I’m good at: I’m gonna wrestle my way out of it. I’m gonna fight my way out of it. I’m gonna put every ounce, every drop of sweat and effort and will I have into winning this Continental Classic tournament.
“This kind of thing, this is what AEW was built on, man. Two guys in the ring, the best wrestlers in the world, giving it their all, feeling that feeling when you’ve given every ounce of yourself in the ring, and pushing the limits, and pushing the boundaries, and making people stand up and go ‘Oh my God!’ What’d I just see?’ Feeling that connection with an audience that loves wrestling as much as we do. That is what AEW is about. Somebody’s gotta step up and win this tournament, and show the world exactly what AEW is, exactly what All Elite Wrestling can be! And that’s just gonna have to be me.
“Because anybody can say what they want but I’m the Ace of the World, b*tch, and that’s just the way it is. And there is nobody in this tournament that can do anything to me worse than what I deal with on a daily basis. Nothing they can do to me that’s worse than fighting the demons that I fight on a daily basis. If you think I’m shot, if you think my trigger’s been pulled, if you think I’m ripe for the picking, please, please, take your shot.” The Maniac is going to go until he can’t go any more, will El Toro Blanco look to take that shot this Wednesday?
Abadon VS Kiera Hogan!
With title chases never stopping, the Undead Girl and the Hottest Flame are fighting to get ahead. Who wins here to move up in the rankings towards the champions of AEW?

Wait! The lights go out! And when the lights come back, JULIA HART is here! Abadon turns around to see her, and the TBS Champion smiles. The lights go out again, and when they come back again, Julia’s gone. Abadon shrieks into the night, will this be like Jason VS Freddy for the title?
Backsatge interview with Samoa Joe.
Alex Marvez says the last time we saw Joe, he was furious that MJF accepted a tag team challenge from “The Devil of AEW.” Joe says why wouldn’t he be? But then someone shouts “SAMOA JOOOE~!” In rolls Roderick Strong & The Kingdom. Roddy tells Joe that Roddy is willing to forgive Joe for trying to end his career with a broken neck not just once but twice. And he knows Joe has his world title match with Max, but c’mon, this is clearly a trap! MJF is the Devil! But hey, Roddy’s best friend “ADAAAM~!” likes Joe and thinks of him as a friend. So as Adam Cole’s best friend, that makes Roddy a friend to Joe.
So hey, Wednesday, it’s a set-up. Those goons will beat the crap out of Joe! And MJF isn’t even here right now! He’s probably plotting how they’re gonna do it! The Kingdom says yeah, Roddy’s right. So just listen to him, okay? Joe chuckles and leaves. Does Joe think they’re joking? Between Joe and “The Devil,” who will have the last laugh on Dynamite?
AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Andrade El Idolo VS Daniel Garcia!
We saw this showdown before when CJ Perry was recruiting clients, and we saw which way that went. But then will history repeat itself? Or will Red Death ruin Andrade’s start in the Blue League?
While no “seconds” are allowed, meaning even manager CJ must return to the back, Daddy Magic found a loophole by joining commentary. He still disapproves of the Garcia dance. Anyway, the bell rings, we’re on the clock, and the two circle. Fans rally up as the two tie up, Garcia rolls Andrade up, ONE! Garcia says he almost had Andrade, but Andrade just smirks. The two reset, tie up again, and Andrade headlocks. Andrade holds on tight, but Garcia powers up to power out. But Andrade runs Garcia over! Fans rally and duel, cheer and jeer, and Andrade CHOPS Garcia! Andrade whips but Garcia stops himself to whip Andrade!
Andrade goes Spider-Man in the ropes to tranquilo! Fans fire up for that, but then Garcia puts his dukes up. Andrade says no dance, but then Garcia clamps on a SLEEPER! Andrade RAMS Garcia into buckles, goes up the ropes, and he CROSSBODIES! Garcia staggers up, Andrade CHOPS him! Andrade whips, but Garcia reverses. Andrade goes up and over, then dropkicks the dropdown! Garcia goes to the apron, and Andrade PLANCHAS! Fans fire up, Andrade puts Garcia in, and he covers, ONE!! Garcia hangs tough but Andrade brings him up. Andrade gives some Latino Heat but Garcia wrenches out. Andrade ROCKS Garcia, but Garcia hits a SHIN BREAKER!
Garcia DRAGON SCREWS the leg, GROUDN DRAGON SCREWS it, then basement dropkicks! Fans fire up, Garcia covers, ONE!! ANKLE LOCK! Andrade scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Garcia lets go, Andrade bails out, and Andrade shakes out the bad leg. Garcia goes out, Menard likes what he sees, but Andrade kicks low!

Andrade’s first tournament match is his first win! Garcia is 0-2, Menard says this is a hole they’ll have to dig out of. Andrade still shows Garcia respect, but is Garcia going to be mathematically eliminated before long?
Willie Mack speaks.
“See, Wardlow, I know you’ve been going through a lot of things these past few weeks, putting your hands on people. But one thing you know about me is you don’t put your hands on my friends. Y’see, this is a person who I’ve tagged with and won multiple tag team championships in other promotions with. So what I’ma have to do, is I’ma have to reach out and touch you. So next week, we’re gonna have to do the damn thing in the ring, so guess what? You better pack a lunch, because I’m a big boy, and I’m a big meal to try to eat.” Mack is standing up for AR Fox, but will the Return of the Mack end up Wardlow’s newest victim?

Backstage interview with Ethan Page.
Lexi Nair is with All Ego, who has requested this time. Ethan says that ever since losing out on the AEW World Championship to MJF, in his home country of Canada, Ethan has had to regroup and refocus. He’s gotten into the best physical shape of his life, he has been in ROH building up win after win. And so, here Ethan is to make a challenge and check off a bucket list thing. AEW is going back to Canada, and Ethan wants to be THE biggest name in Canadian wrestling. So therefore, to be the King of Canada, he needs his crown. That crown is currently on someone else’s head.
So in Montreal, 1v1, we find out who the best Canadian wrestler truly is, as Ethan calls out KENNY OMEGA! Will The Cleaner give All Ego that opportunity?
AEW hears from Willow Nightingale and Mercedes Martinez.
The Babe with the Power tells Mercedes, “our history goes further back than you probably even realize. I’ve been such a fan, and I’ve admired you so much.” The OG Badass says the first time they met, Willow “was this night little pretty Willow.” Willow says she is constantly disappointed in Mercedes’ behavior as of late, and in herself because she hasn’t been able to beat Mercedes. Mercedes asks how many times must Willow dance her way into Mercedes’ business? Isn’t Willow tired of being everyone’s hero? Next time they meet, Willow will need to be saved. Because Mercedes will dance and stomp all over her.
Malakai Black & Buddy Matthews VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!
Brody took the lead in the Blue League, and Julia has called out her next target. Will the Dark Father and Aussie Juggernaut make sure that the House Always Wins? Or will the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin finally stake a claim in the AEW Tag Division?
The teams sort out, Buddy starts against Sydal, and the two circle. They knuckle lock, Buddy trips and covers, ONE as Sydal gets an arm up! Buddy pushes it down, ONE as the other arm comes up.

Winner: The House of Black, by pinfall
Another Collision, another sweep for the Dark Father and his family. The lights go down, but why? The House is already here. But here comes FTR! Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood storm down to the ring bathed in the magenta light! Malakai tells them that before they do anything, Malakai assumes that they’re both here because they are joining the House. Dax chuckles but Malakai says he is a family man. And we know it’s been weeks. The only people in AEW that have been here for the both of them has been The House of Black. Malakai’s done a lot of things, but not once has he told a lie.
The fans chant “HOUSE OF BLACK!” and Malakai drops the mic for FTR to take. Dax picks it up, but Buddy KNEES him down! Cash goes after Buddy but he gets mugged! Cash still throws hands, but Buddy CURB STOMPS him down! Buddy then drags Dax up, and he makes Dax watch as Malakai sets Cash up! BLACK MASS!! Dax is seething but he can’t get free of Buddy’s chinbar, and Malakai says see! Not one single person has come to help them! And was Malakai right or what? No one is coming to help. Dax flips Malakai off, so he gets BLACK MASS!! Is this going to be the end for FTR in AEW once and for all?
Backstage interview with Toni Storm.
Renee Paquette is with “Timeless Toni,” bringing up last week as Storm accepting the AEW Women’s World Championship, and Storm says yes, she knows, she has no time for these prepared questions. And where is “that man who usually does my interviews? He has so much more poise.” And she isn’t even finished doing her hair because they were too busy with some blonde floosy! And yes, Storm did accept her championship last week, Renee was a dear for presenting that. But Storm was unceremoniously interrupted by Skye Blue!
Storm tells Skye that if she had any advice at all, it’d be to walk backwards! The only time anyone has anything nice to say about Skye, it’s in reference to her bottom! Is Storm supposed to be worried because Skye’s all spooky now? With that little thing on her head? Storm used to wear hats and be spooky. BOO. See? Not that hard. Interrupt her, fine. She can be first to challenge for “this little huckleberry right here.” But until then, chin up, chest out, and oh… she’s bare foot. Sorry. She takes RENEE’S shoe to throw around! Toni is timeless, but will the Storm strike down Chicago Skye?
Skye Blue speaks.
Well first, she sighs. “Toni, I have met you through every single one of your phases, but this little midlife crisis your going through is the most pathetic I have seen thus far. But you haven’t met this Skye Blue. So bring your little butler, bring your little blond bimbo, and whatever 1940s black ‘n’ white crap you got up that robe, because none of it is going to stop me from taking that championship from you. So I’m gonna have my chin up, my chest out, and I’m gonna shove your shoe right up your ass.” Strong words from a fired up challenger, will she be the new leading lady of AEW?
Christian Cage speaks.
Captain Charisma says, “I don’t think it’s any secret to anybody how far back my relationship with Adam Copeland goes. I think I more or less tolerated Adam. He was a hanger-on, he wanted to be like me, which is why he’s always tried to steal my spotlight wherever we’ve gone.” And that held Christian back. Edge got what he never got. He was pushed all the way to the bottom when they broke up as a tag team. But Christian willed himself to the top. he is here to be the best, anyone else is expendable. And Edge wants to take away everything Christian’s built up the last three years? Christian has nothing to prove to himself, but Edge has everything to prove to Christian.
This time, Christian is what everyone talks about. Whether it’s Dynamite, Rampage or Collision, Christian nis on the tip of everyone’s tongue. He is the Face of TNT, the Face of AEW, then, now and forever! Christian has always been better than Edge, and in Montreal, everyone will finally know. But will “The Patriarch” be the one in for a shock when things get Rated R on Wednesday?
El Hijo Del Vikingo VS Kip Sabian!
The AAA Mega Champion is coming off a big trios win last night on Rampage, but Mr. Superbad just thinks of him as the most overrated wrestler on the AEW roster. Will Kip put his money where his mouth is? Or will he be on the losing end of this Collision?
The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. They tie up, Kip cording holds but Vikingo whips. Kip arm-drags and holds on, but Vikingo goes up and over! Kip just changes up cording holds, arm-drags, but then Vikingo pushes him. Kip arm-drags again and keeps the hold, wagging his finger. Then Kip CHOPS, Vikingo CHOPS back! Vikingo throws knees, goes up and out to HOTSHOT Kip! Then Vikingo springboards, but Kip slides out., Vikingo keeps moving, but he fakes Kip out! Fans fire up, Kip runs in but Vikingo dodges to HEEL KCIK! Kip goes to a corner, Vikingo whips but Kip reverses.
Viking slips out to the apron, Kip hits buckles, then Vikingo GAMANGIRIS! Vikingo goes up and around and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Things keep moving, Vikingo CORKSCREW RANAS Kip out! Then Vikingo DIVES into a GAMANGIRI! Kip intercepts Vikingo and talks some trash. Then Kip ARABIAN PRESSES to take Vikingo down! Fans fire up and Collision goes picture in picture.
Kip drags Vikingo up, puts him in the ring, then drags him up to ROCK him with a forearm. Kip bumps Vikingo off buckles, then whips corner to corner hard! Vikingo falls back, Kip flexes, and Kip drags Vikingo to a cover, TWO! Kip drags Vikingo into a mounted armlock, but Vikingo endures. Kip BITES Vikingo’s hand! The ref misses that, but Vikingo fights to the ROPEBREAK! Kip lets go, then stands Vikingo up to ELBOW him to the corner. Kip stomps Vikingo again and again, then sits him down. Kip backs up to then run in again, CANNONBALL! Kip drags Vikingo to a cover, TWO! Vikingo is hanging in there but Kip keeps cool as Collision goes to break.
Collision returns and Kip ROCKS Vikingo with forearm after forearm. Fans boo, Kip whips, but Vikingo rebounds, gets under, and DREAMCAST KICKS! Kip flops against ropes and fans rally with Vikingo. Vikingo runs in at the corner, but stops as Kip moves. Kip returns, into a scoop and torture rack! Argentine Flip KNEE STRIKE! Like an inverted GTS! Kip falls, Vikingo drags him to a drop zone and goes up the ropes from the outside. INSIDE-OUT PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Kip survives and he manages to smile about it. Vikingo drags Kip back to another drop zone, but Kip goes after Vikingo as he climbs!
Kip climbs up after Vikingo, fans fire up and Vikingo throws body shots. Vikingo HEADBUTTS, Kip flops to the apron. But then Kip springboards u to SUPER STEINER! Kip hurries to scoop, FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Kip is stunned as Vikingo survives! Kip drags Vikingo up again, waistlocks, then torture racks. DEATHLY- NO, Vikngo flips free, dodges and SUPERMAN PUNCHES! Vikingo goes up as Kip bails out, to tightrope walk TORNILLO!!! Direct hit and the fans lose their minds! Vikingo puts Kip back in, runs corner to corner, METEORA! And then Vikingo goes right up, for the 630 SENTON!!! Cover, Vikingo wins!!
Winner: El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall
The AAA Mega Champion cools off Kip’s hot take, because no one who can do what Vikingo did in this match is “overrated!” But Vikingo does show Kip a sign of respect by offering a handshake. The fans cheer to shake hands, but Kip says no! Will Kip ever get over himself? Will Vikingo earn even more gold in the New Year?
Backstage interview with Keith Lee.
Lexi is with the Limitless One, and says last time, he mentioned “him.” Just who is “him?” But then in walks Shane Taylor, because he knows who “him” is! Because Keith ain’t dumb enough to look past Shane. But last year’s match didn’t solve anything, so this year, they give the people the fight they really wanna see. Keith VS Shane, 1v1, Final Battle, so Shane can beat Keith’s ass in front of the entire world! Keith thinks on that a moment. Challenge accepted. And see #TAIGASTYLE later, too. Then in two weeks, in Garland, Texas, will that truly be the Pretty Boy Killers’ Final Battle?
Backstage interview with CJ Perry.
Lexi and CJ are outside Andrade’s office, and notes that Andrade’s first win was impressive. UH OH, here comes Miro! Miro says move, CJ says no! Miro can’t go in there! She knows he thinks things will go poorly, but when Miro chose his god over her, she has to prove herself. By Andrade winning, it will help CJ. So if Miro wants to go in there, fine, he’s a grown man. But if there is any love left for CJ, do not do this. Do not lay a hand on her client. Please? Miro says if His God was still with him, he would be in this tournament and have ripped Andrade’s spine out already! Miro then caresses CJ’s face, and says he won’t touch her client. She has his word.
Miro storms off, but what will The Redeemer do to prove himself worthy of gold in the background of the Continental Classic?
AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Bryan Danielson VS Eddie Kingston!
The American Dragon was the first entrant named to this tournament, but could not compete in it until now. And he doesn’t think The Mad King is ready if one loss takes away all the confidence he had going into this. Will Bryan just pour fuel on that fire? Or will Eddie be the one to earn his first points tonight?
The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The fans fire up as Bryan and Eddie stare down. They slowly circle and approach. They feel things out, knuckle lock, but then Eddie tests things with a kick. Bryan stays back, they reset, and Eddie guards a kick. Bryan keeps trying but Eddie pushes back. Bryan uses ropes as a defense and the fans boo. Bryan smirks as he and Eddie reset, and they test the waters again. Bryan gives kicks, Eddie walks it off, and they feel things out again. Eddie fires off hands, clinches Bryan on the ropes, and the ref counts. Eddie puts Bryan in a corner, the ref counts but Bryan turns things around.
Bryan lets off slowly, but then CHOPS! Eddie just snarls while fans “WOO~!” Eddie storms up on Bryan, they feel things out, and Eddie tries some kicks now. Bryan also kicks, neither man lands a strong shot yet. They end up in a corner, Bryan turns things around on Eddie, then he CHOPS! Eddie CHOPS Bryan down! Fans fire up as Eddie stares Bryan down again. Bryan stands, he and Eddie feel things out again, and fans are behind Eddie more than they are Bryan. The two grapple, Eddie rolls but Bryan facelocks. They go to ropes, the ref counts, and Eddie fights up. The ref gets in between but Bryan KICKS Eddie!
Bryan fires off fast hands but then so does Eddie! Bryan kicks, but then Eddie kicks the bad arm! Bryan falls back, Eddie storms up but Bryan trips Eddie! Eddie goes for knuckle locks but Eddie’s leg guard keeps him back. Bryan KICKS a leg, KICKS again, then KICKS again! Bryan KICKS Eddie in the back! Bryan sits Eddie up to CHOP! Eddie eggs him on! Bryan CHOPS again, but Eddie brings the straps down! Bryan CHOPS again! Eddie is stinging but he grits his teeth. Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And then snapmares to cover, ONE!! Bryan keeps on Eddie with a motorcycle stretch but Eddie endures.
Fans rally, Eddie fights up, but Bryan digs his forehead into Eddie’s shoulder blades. Eddie still turns things around to have Bryan in the stretch! Bryan endures, powers up, and waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Eddie stands up but then falls back over! Eddie goes to the apron, shakes out the stars, but Bryan runs in to BOOT him! Eddie holds onto ropes! Bryan runs up again to BOOT! Eddie still holds on, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS! Eddie swings, Bryan ducks to dropkick the legs out! Bryan then builds speed to slide, but Eddie avoids him! SAIDO to the floor! Fans fire up while both men are down, and Collision goes picture in picture!
The ref checks both men, and both men are somehow still in this. Eddie shakes out his arms as he sits up, and he drags Bryan up. Eddie CHOPS Bryan, then follows him around the way.

YES!” Bryan HEADBUTTS again and Eddie staggers away. Bryan adjusts, MISSILE DROPKICKS, and down goes Eddie!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Eddie earns 0)
THIS is the fight Bryan wanted from Eddie! But in the end, Bryan is the one to win the fight! Will Bryan keep on going through his next four fights? Eddie is technically still ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight Champion, but with an 0-2 start, has he all but lost them both?
A great Collision, with awesome Continental Classic matches, but also matches they kayfabe’d as “standby” to try and kayfabe the tournament matches not going closer to their 20 minute time limits. A weird move to me but it’s not like we haven’t seen such a move by American televised pro-wrestling before. And surprisingly great stuff out of Vikingo VS Kip, but that was partly the point. Kip calls Vikingo overrated, then gets beat by Vikingo to show how legit Vikingo is, and there could even be a rivalry in the making or something. Kip still has Butcher & Blade to call on, that trio could take on Vikingo, Komander & Penta at some point.
Good match from Abadon and Kiera, with a really good win for Abadon. Julia showing up to basically call Abadon out was an interesting move but I also like it. Different kinds of spooky wrestlers are going to collide, this will be a good program for them both. And very good promos from both Storm and Skye to hype up their title match this Wednesday. Renee definitely looked like she was struggling to not break during Storm’s part, that’s how good Storm is. And I would think Storm retains because she’ll have Luther and Mariah May ringside. And good promo from Willow and Mercedes to set up their match, that’ll be really good stuff.
Good promo from Willie Mack to call out Wardlow but I would think Wardlow beats him to continue his dominance. Good promo from Christian to add some final hype onto the TNT Championship match. And good promo from Ethan Page to not just plug his time in ROH, but also to call out Kenny Omega. Ethan VS Omega is going to be really good, but that probably ends up being Omega’s win to build momentum going into the next round against Don Callis Family. But it also just makes me think Tony Khan still doesn’t get how ROH is supposed to matter. Ethan is in the middle of stuff with Tony Nese and he’s dividing his attention by wanting to be King of Canadian Wrestlers? What?
But thankfully, we did get a promo from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor to finally set up that match. And I do appreciate that it will be part of Final Battle since that’s where this feud started. Anything to make up for poor ticket sales and no ROH World Championship. Or even tag team championship at this point, right? The Kingdom called out MJF but MJF hasn’t taken the time to respond, he has The Devil of AEW to worry about. Good promo from Joe with Roddy & The Kingdom before The Kingdom beat The Iron Savages. Roddy was extra dramatic in his floundering out of the ring this time, can’t wait to see whether he and The Kingdom are still in on the whole Devil goon squad stuff.
Very good tag match from House of Black VS Daniels & Sydal but of course the House won. And good promo with FTR that then turned into a beatdown. That tag match is definitely going to be big for like Winter is Coming. And then, the Continental Classic. Great opening match from Claudio VS Brody, with a great win for Brody to lead the way in this block. And just as I expected, while we got awesome showings in the other matches, Garcia and Eddie each lost to Andrade and Bryan. Good promo for Miro wanting after Andrade but showing mercy for CJ’s sake. That feud probably waits until after the tournament, assuming Andrade isn’t a finalist. Worlds End would be a good PPV for Miro VS Andrade to happen as part of this ongoing story.
I also appreciated Eddie saying he doesn’t want to do cold open promos when he has a big match to get ready for. Doing coverage like I do, I don’t want to fall behind on the broadcast already trying to keep up with what people are saying at the very start like that. Even Claudio did a short promo because he also just wants to have his match, so they really should just have the matches and save promos for later in the night.
My Score: 8.8/10

OrangeHausen, HookHausen, OrangeHook, all of the above, and #JustTrent take on Daddy Magic, Cool Hang Ange, Alex Reynolds & Evil Uno in a big, super team-up type deal! But will the Very Nice, Very Evil Best Friends be victorious together? Or will the rogues gallery standing against them earn themselves quite a lot of golden opportunities all at once?
But wait, as Big Hurt Hager gets the VNVEBFs to turn their backs, the rogues attack! Fans boo, the bell rings, and all but Danhausen is tossed out of the ring as he tosses Reynolds instead. Uno CLUBS Danhausen, Cassidy is sent into railing, and Uno puts Danhausen in a corner. Uno CHOPS him, soaks up the heat, and then storms up. Danhausen kicks low, throws hands, but Uno kicks back.

HookHausen double whip Uno, Uno holds ropes and Menard tags in. Menard, Parker and Reynolds all get in, but then so do Trent and Cassidy! The eight men are stare down, and the brawl is back on! The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip! But the Best Friends all reverse that, X-JAS and Dark Order crash into each other! And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!
Fans fire up because now we get the GROUP HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Hook then goes after Parker with body shots, but Menard storms up. Menard hits low, scoops Hook, BACKBREAKER and Parker KNEES Hook down! But Trent JUMP KNEES Parker down! Menard kicks low and POWERBOMBS Trent! Cassidy dodges Menard to tilt-o-whirl and DDT! Uno CHOPS Cassidy down! Danhausen baits Uno in for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Reynolds runs in, spins Danhausen and ROLLING ELBOWS!
Hook is back up, T-BONE for Reynolds! T-BONE for Parker! Uno is up, he kicks low and whips. Hook reverses that to clinch and T-BONE! Extra large serving for Uno there! But wait, here comes Wheeler Yuta! The ROH Pure Champion wants to taunt Hook like he has been for weeks now, and then Menard CLOBBERS Hook in the distraction! Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.
Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles. Tag to Menard, he stomps Hook then lets off to distract the ref, Uno and Parker CHOKE Hook while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!
Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down! The fans fire up as Hook and Menard crawl, hot tags to Trent and Uno! Trent rallies on Uno, then on Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX!

Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!
Reynolds ROCKS Cassidy, climbs up, but Trent runs up to get Reynolds! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Cassidy adjusts, and Danhausen tags in! But so does Menard!

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?
Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.
Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.
Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.
Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.
But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.
“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”
Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?
Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.
Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”
And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?
The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C
So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?
The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!
Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall
Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?
Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.
Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!
Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?
Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!
Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?
The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.
But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!
Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.
Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles. Tag to Ruby, she stomps away on Skye, but lets off as the ref counts. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Ruby drags Skye around. Skye throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS! Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.
Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.
Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall
The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?
A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.
Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.
And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.
